Based on a recent survey by ESG Research, 81% of surveyed organizations are still running Windows Server 2003. Of those, 25% have no plans to migrate in the short term leaving themselves exposed to new vulnerabilities, malware threats, and data breaches now that Windows Server 2003 has reached end of support.
If that's you, how do you plan to protect your business against this growing risk on a software platform that is at end of life?
As recommended by Microsoft, the most important thing is for you to plan on migrating from Windows Server 2003. If you're just not ready to migrate before end of support, you can help protect your Windows Server 2003 system with the virtual patching and system security that the Trend Micro Deep Security platform offers.
Trend Micro Deep Security uses intrusion detection and prevention (IDS/IPS) technologies to shield vulnerabilities in out-of-support Windows Server 2003 systems before they can be exploited. Our virtual patching capabilities give you proven vulnerability protection that will help you extend the life of legacy systems. To protect against changes in a system that is no longer being patched by Microsoft, Deep Security also delivers built-in system security capabilities, including integrity monitoring, enabling the detection of changes where there should no longer be any. So you can keep Windows Server 2003 systems protected until they can be migrated, reducing risk and keeping your IT operational expenses low.
